Courtney is originally from a Knoxville, Tennessee, but is currently a student at the University of Alabama and the director of Beat Auburn Beat Hunger. Courtney’s role as an intern for the West Alabama Food Bank gives her a unique opportunity to take what she’s learning in the classroom and pragmatically apply it to her duties at the Food Bank.
Courtney loves that even if she’s having a rough day, she knows people got a chance to eat because of the work she and the rest of the team does at the West Alabama Food Bank. She always tells her staff at Beat Auburn Beat Hunger, “every email, every phone call, people get to eat because of that. The West Alabama Food Bank helps people rise out of poverty, provide some food, and some other products that way we can help take some stress off of some bills they may be facing.”
